A-TEAM phase 1: final report

A-TEAM phase 1 targeted, through research, the development of three method packages for important scenarios where research and development is needed for active safety systems. The research about methods took place in work packages WP4, 5, and 6, where WP4 focused on accidents with oncoming traffic, WP5 contained vulnerable road users research, and WP6 focused on rear-end situations where heavy vehicles closes in on a another vehicle from the rear. To ensure that the methods would have relevance in real-world traffic, the method work was started after the field data research in WP3 had reached solid results. In WP3, accident statistics and further research projects on European level were used as sources to define the most important scenarios. Thereafter, analytical methods were used to condense the statistical data from WP3 into the test cases that were further researched in WP4, 5, and 6. WP7 was used to exploit the results from A-TEAM phase 1 in a successful way. Its goal was to address the test equipment shortcomings and demonstrate a test system where the methods could be performed. Even taking the work in the scenario, method, and test demonstrator work packages into account, it was clear from the beginning that A-TEAM phase 1 could only address a minor part of the total method research needed. To map out further as well as complementary research needs, WP2 conducted a pre-study focusing on the next few years. The objectives of A-TEAM phase 1 were: 1. Through research, define accident scenarios within intersection collisions, accidents with heavy vehicles, and accidents with vulnerable road users including requirements. 2. Create new knowledge about how other accident and autonomous vehicle scenarios not included in A-TEAM phase 1 can be solved. 3. Create test methods for the scenarios. 4. Demonstrate a test system where the test methods can be conducted with high quality and efficiency. 5. Foster innovation, cooperation, and competence development within all areas above.
